A must have in the plastics industry.

Pros

Rock solid, it just works. Quick technical support available both by phone or web chat. Very powerful and intuitive.

Cons

Major upgrades and client installations could be more streamlined. Multi monitor support could be improved as windows can easily get lost.

IQMS serves it's purpose, although seems outdated and lacks integration with new versions of Windows

Pros

Overall functionality seems conducive to manufacturing companies. The "Pros" are simply that it works. That's really about it. I would not have chosen this software if I wasn't involved in the decision making process.

Cons

Outdated, many hidden features that are not easily found, help documents don't really help. Training is expensive

If users are prepared to put in the upfront work into IQMS it will be a great asset to your business

Pros

The depth and breadth of the program is impressive. I like the flexibly of use from a small section of manufacturing process, to using it fully from quoting, production and quality testing. Consistency but continued expansion of the IQMS program is appreciated (I am a user since 2004). Help desk can be very responsive when it comes to problems/questions arising. If it is a major problem they will `take you by the hand solve it with you. With the interface I appreciate the ability to jump from window to window to window. I also appreciate it is a multi-window program.

Cons

The structure of the database not being directly linked to the naming scheme of the interface can be frustrating when creating reports or finding problems. The structure of security section is hard to manage (groups and sections instead of individual profiles and direct security approvals). Not being able to easily substitute alternative items in the BOMs/Work orders can be a hindrance to accurate consumption. Also the structure of the consumption can be awkward.
If a change is needed to the program a committee gathers once a year to vote on the focus of the upgrades and improvements, is the process to update errors to the computer system, instead of a more instant solution (though if it is obvious they will fix it sooner).

IQMS has become part of PRISM, and handles our processes for business from quote to invoice.

Helps run out business and give us quick access to all data to help manage our business on a hourly/daily basis.

Pros

Real-Time integration, and our ability to utilize IQAlert and SmartPage for Real-Time display of metric data.

Cons

Updates over the last few years have broke functions that have caused problems. Seems like more effort needs to be put into software testing and debug before service packs are implemented.

Overall our experience has been good..

We use the software to run our entire company.

Pros

IQMS has adapted to meet the needs of our customer requirements that are constantly evolving. They have also put forth a good effort to make enhancements to the system to improve or add functionality to the software for a better manufacturing ERP experience.

Cons

Upgrades can be a lot on the rough side. Even with testing prior to going live there are things that happen that should not. I am not sure if is a always a live load situation that provides the challenge, but there has been an increase with issues happening in the upgrade process. Support has also taken a hit over the past couple of years. Level 1 support is lacking on anything but basic issues. If there is anything complex, good luck. Also, if anything happens outside the normal front end interface about 50% of support won't even attempt to help you and the customer is on their own.

easy to use system with a great customer support team and system

Pros

MES functionality easy to set up and use. Scheduling module easy to use, easy to move stuff around and work around constraints.

Cons

I think the reporting is a little difficult to use. They have a good base of generic reports, but customizing is difficult. It would be a lot better/simpler if there was an easy to use dynamic reporting structure within the system.

3 year experience with IQMS, Usually making Report or alerts and managing user security profiles

Pros

The flexibility to do tasks specific to our company needs. The user similarity throughout the system.

Cons

Certain features require the use of other features to gain 100% of the one feature we are wanting to used.

Very functional; Report accuracy between different modules is great.

One common database for information. Real time information. Covers all aspects of our business.

Pros

Being specifically designed for the plastics industry helps find pertinent data easily. IQMS listens to the users and will make modifications to meet user's requests.

Cons

I wish there were more standard reports with more descriptive titles and that the necessary report parameters would be highlighted. While I'm very conversant with the accounting and financial reports, it's using reports from other modules that I could use more information on.

A complete, robust ERP system with nice shop floor control.

Increased ability to schedule and monitor a wide variety and volume of orders. We try to run our business as much as we can with this software.

Pros

The Real-time live production monitoring is great. The scheduling is strong. The "jump" feature across most modules it great. The context-specific help is good. Smart-page is good.

Cons

The forced blanket orders for sales and purchase orders is cumbersome and seems complex. MRP is a bit scattered and could be streamlined.

I have experienced many ERP Systems software over the years, IQMS is one of the best I have used.

A full ERP Suite of modules to operate the business for an end to end software solution.

Pros

Ability to highly customize System Parameters, Modules, and Reports in order to meet/exceed departmental goals and needs, Oracle Database, Crystal Reports, intuitive interface and flow throughout the system.

Cons

As with any highly configurable system, it's takes time to learn for proficiency. System users must be committed and spend the necessary time to learn their modules.

Some things are easy to use some things are very difficult

Pros

It is easy to go between different screens within each module. The GL is user friendly as well as the AR module.

Cons

Because the system is modified to fit each company the help center does not provide the information needed when trying to figure something out with the way our system is set up. Issues with having different UOM for our European customers compared to our US customers.

IQMS for us is an all encompassing software that keeps us going

Our benefit is it runs our company and it makes ERP software the least of things we think about because it works well

Pros

Everything is modular so you can use as much or as little of it as you wish. There is a full support team for different area's of the software so help is always available

The best ERP package I have seen to date! We utilize IQMS in every aspect of our production.

Increased production efficiency, increased quality, great finite scheduling, reduced inventory, and integrated EDI.

Pros

Full featured, comprehensive, and complete ERP package. Using IQMS we were able to increase our production efficiency, reduce inventory, improve quality, and provide meaningful metrics for decision making. Integrated EDI makes this a well rounded solution for all automotive suppliers.

Cons

No complaints what so ever! IQMS is a very stable package with excellent support. Keep up the fantastic work IQMS!

I have been using IQMS since we went live in 2002. I work with 4 different E-plants.

Pros

I like that you can use online self-help training videos. Navigation from page to page is quick and easy. You can put security on almost everything. The help files are very well done. The IQMS community connects you to other real users for additional help and ideas for the best way to utilize the system. Customer support has always been friendly, easy to work with, and knowledgeable. I am excited for our next step which is moving to the cloud.

Cons

Set up is very extensive. Yearly maintenance is expensive. Some features/functions are global settings and not all e-plants operate exactly the same.

Great experience. Been using IQMS for over 11 years at two facilities. Highly recommend this ERP

Ability to have real time data which allows us to make quick and decisive decisions for our business.

Pros

The ease of use. Very easy to get around and the ability to right click and jump from screen to screen let's you keep moving forward without having to close stuff out and start back up.

Cons

I would say Customer Support - Seems like we have to talk to several people before we can get things figured out. Would also like to get information about upgrades and when they're available. Supposedly, our version is like 3 versions behind, which could possibly be causing some of our issues? Would be nice to get some information on this.

IQMS ERP Software has met all our needs.

Pros

I like that it's relatively simple set to manage from a DBA's perspective. It is also highly functional.

Cons

The menus can be a little counter-intuitive at first, but you get used to it. The time and attendance module could be more user-friendly.

IQMS Review

As far as the manufacturing side IQMS does a good job. It is when you get outside the manufacturing that you run into issues. The HR and reporting functions are not nearly as robust as other software that I have used.

Pros

Pro -IQMS is a good manufacturing system. The labeling functionality is very good and helps support tracing the origins of all the parts we manufacture.

Cons

Con- Once you leave the manufacturing area, performance and customer service for this area really drops off. One of the weaker HR, payroll, training and reporting systems I have ever worked with.

IQMS answers vast array of Manufacturing Types and Product needs

I've implemented IQMS for a company that manufactures custom carbon fiber products in the areas of Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial, Military, Medical, Oil & Gas, Marine and Recreational products. IQMS allows the flexibility to manufacture products using various different types of BOM's and configurations. Lot Tracking and Serialization help keep traceability of products from finished Goods down to the Purchase order, and delivery date of the raw materials used to build the product.
